Comes With a Compact Disc of the Pieces Performed by Allan Alexander

The CD, played by Allan Alexander, gives the musician the advantage of being able to hear how these songs can be played and will make the learning process easier. This is a high quality Digital recording (DDD). In addition to helping the player become familiar with the music, it will also be a source of listening pleasure. You can also turn down either channel (mandolin or guitar) and play along with the CD.

A High Quality Collection of Easy Pieces for Mandolin.

This book provides the mandolin player with a unique opportunity to play a wide variety of Renaissance music including many lute pieces. From “The Cobbler’s Hornpipe” to the lovely “Home Again, Market is Done,” you will have a great time with these selections. It can be a great gig book, either for early music events or for any performance. These are very attractive pieces. You will find them catchy and they will attract the attention of listeners. They are also quite playable, and lay well on the fingerboard. If you work with a guitarist, there are chords for him or her to use as a basis to build an accompaniment. The Mandolin parts are presented in both notation and tablature.

The accompanying CD is a recording of all of the tunes in the same order in which they appear in the book. Allan Alexander is playing the mandolin and also the guitar, providing a harmonic tapestry over which the melodies float. The Mandolin is in the left channel, and the guitar in the right. You can turn down the left channel and play along with just the guitar if you choose. Every piece in the book can also be played by mandolin alone. Allan chose to record the pieces with guitar in order to present the music with a chordal background and to create an enjoyable CD.
